(Adult Education Room #2) is smaller than AER1 so the capacity is limited to about 20 people. 

The Social Center
​This parish center is up the hill from the church grounds, with its own driveway, and only accessible from Camino Rico. The center can accommodate 250 people sitting at round tables, but the facility can be split up into 3 distinctive and separate areas to meet specific needs.  A full service kitchen, stage area and large foyer make the center popular for larger events.
